Good Sunday evening and happy twelvth PSA of Women in Horror Month, Souls! House of Tortured Souls is proud to present the next entry in this year’s Women in Horror Month Blood Drive.

Today’s PSA comes to us from Stephanie Dugan of Cleveland, OH.

As always, here’s the obligatory disclaimer (not that we need it, right Souls?):

DISCLAIMER: This IS Horror, boys and grrls, so SOME of these do have VERY naughty content. Blood. Gore. EXTREME gore. Disturbing situations. Nudity. Sexual situations. Violence. Language.
If you are SENSITIVE to this kind of content, be a mature human being and just don’t watch. No need to spoil the fun for us fellow weirdos. We’re not hurting anyone. It just REALLY looks like we are 😉

And without further ado, behold the killer twelvth Blood Drive PSA of Women in Horror Month:

Full Cast & Crew

All from Cleveland, OH


Elena Sanchez – THE BITCH
Eric S. Grow – THE CREEP


Tom Stumpf – GEAR GUY – he brought the lights and sound equipment
Kristine Gallagher – BLOOD GIRL – she brought the blood and made the heart


The crew and I met at Cleveland State University while we were working towards our degree in film. We had so much fun in class, running around the city meeting new people, flashing our student IDs to shoot anywhere we wanted and making movies. Elena and I know each other from high school and she has always believed in my ideas and dreams. I met Eric during the annual 48 Hour Film Shootout, which I wrote and ran camera for.


I am born, bred, surviving and thriving in Cleveland, OH. I graduated from Cleveland State University with a bachelor’s in Film, however I’ve been writing and shooting spooky movies since I was 9. My ultimate goal is to travel the world garnering inspiration from abandoned places where there was once a bit of humanity. I love all kinds of horror but am particular to all things satanic, depraved or full of classic monster tropes/allegory. I am constantly writing screenplays and dreaming up degenerate ways to scare an audience. I am currently in the pre-production phase of a film surrounding a cult and I’m trying to put together the necessary people and tools on a non-existent budget. I am also in the treatment phase of a werewolf film. I LOVE werewolves and they are completely under appreciated, in my opinion. I am someone who is intimately involved in every part of the film making process, even one of my favorite parts, everyone’s favorite part-craft services. I feel as a women, living at the cusp of the poverty line, you have to be, 110% closely involved, in order to be taken seriously and to make sure that your vision is fully realized and properly executed. I own and run Late October Productions which is a Cleveland-based film and photography studio. My lifestyle is horror, always has, always will be.


Blood donating is important to me because I’m aware of just how important it is for those who need last minute saving. The only incentive there is to donate, is the desire to help a stranger in need. You can be giving your blood to a child, an old lady, a mother, a teacher, a priest, a janitor, an artist anyone. Blood is humanity’s bonding lifeline, we all have it and we all can give it to save others. There are some people out there whose life depends on blood donations. A great way to make an impact is to donate blood and truly save someone’s life. Who knows you can always end up on the receiving end some day.

Remember, Souls, there’ll be a new PSA every day up to and including 1 March 2018, and please check out the official WiHM website for more on Women in Horror Month.
